Tokee - Quintuplet

Tokee - QuintupletThe second release of the Israeli label Dope Records (I wrote about it in the previous review) is in fact the continuation of the full-value album Tokee - Plus. Here are 5 new tracks and numerous reworks and remakes. You can even listen to Plus and Quintuplet one by one without a pause as the whole. The second part of the disc coming after new tracks of Tokee didn't bring anything new. I expected that it would propose a cardinally new approach to music. But all that is in this album is the material of this and previous releases reworked in the same very style, so unfortunately "Bonus Tracks" is nothing more than just a bonus.

I really like emotionality of Tokee's music, each track has its own charge of sense, idea and its "picture" - from terminators' invasion to a helpless planet and flights to the space to postapocalyptic tragedy of life after global nuclear catastrophe. Intentional "analogue" and "outdated" sounding adds up colouring, but again there are few experiments and unexpected things so liked by me, and that aggrieves me.
